Taliban Truck Attack Kills 20 In Afghanistan

At least twenty people are dead after Taliban militants detonated a truck packed with explosives outside a hospital in southern Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, in the eastern part of the country, a U.S. drone strike targeting Islamic State militants killed 15 civilians working in a pine nut field, according to U.S. and Afghan officials.

Taliban fighters have carried out attacks nearly every day since President Trump canceled peace talks earlier this month.
